FAQ's For Ulcers

The main cause of ulcers is a reduction in the thick layer of mucus that protects the stomach from corrosive digestive juices.

If treated, they can be cured easily. However, if left unnoticed, they can become severe and cause much worse complications like perforation, bleeding, or cancer.

Uncomplicated stomach ulcers take about 2-3 months to heal completely.

If caused by an H. pylori infection, stomach ulcers are best treated with antibiotics and PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors). If caused by excessive use of NSAIDs, stop usage immediately and find a suitable replacement.

Coffee, chocolate, oily or spicy foods, alcohol, and acidic fruits like oranges and tomatoes should be avoided when healing from a stomach ulcer.

Stomach ulcer, or gastric ulcers, are painful sores in the inner lining of the stomach. The main cause of ulcers is a reduction in the thick layer of mucus that protects the stomach from corrosive digestive juices. If treated, they can be cured easily. However, if left unnoticed, they can become severe and cause much worse complications like perforation, bleeding, or cancer.

The most common signs of an ulcer are:
Burning pain in the stomach (between the chest and naval)
Weight loss
Inability to eat because of the pain
Nausea
Vomiting
Bloating
Feeling easily full
Burping or acid reflux
Heartburn
Pain that improves on eating, drinking, or taking antacids
Anaemia
Vomit that’s bloody or has brown spots

Stomach ulcers are caused either by infection from the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), or by prolonged use of NSAIDs like ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, or aspirin. A rare condition called Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, which can increase the production of acids in the stomach, is responsible for less than 1% of all peptic ulcers.

Ulcer treatment will depend on the severity of symptoms. In most cases the best ulcer treatment is prescription medications from doctors, however, in more serious cases, surgery may be required. The following are some common non-surgical cures for ulcers:
Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)—These are used in the case of an H. pylori infection. They block the stomach cells which create acid.
Antibiotics—Antibiotics help get rid of the bacteria which causes an H. pylori infection.
H2 receptor blockers—This medication also blocks acid production in the stomach.
Probiotics—Probiotics encourage a healthy balance of good bacteria in the stomach which can help kill off bad bacteria like H. pylori, and ease ulcer pain.
Bismuth supplement—Medications containing bismuth subsalicylates (Pepto-Bismol) coat peptic ulcers and protect them from corrosive acids in the stomach.

HerbsDaily offers a wide range of probiotics and bismuth supplements effective in treating stomach ulcers.
